Invisalign – Clearly a Patient Favourite
While everyone wants a straight smile, many people who require orthodontic treatment are put off by the thought of unsightly metal braces and the effect traditional braces can have socially and professionally. This has led to Invisalign clear aligners becoming the preferred orthodontics treatment of choice for many patients at Leichhardt Dental and Haberfield Dental.
Leichhardt Dental and Haberfield Dental are a certified Invisalign provider offering treatment to the local business community and all surrounding neighbourhoods, such as North Ryde and Marsfield.
A virtually invisible and hygienic treatment, the Invisalign System uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten your crooked teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign treatment uses the unique SMARTForce Technology that creates a series of custom-made removable aligners for you and only you. All you have to do is to wear these aligners, made of clear plastic, over your teeth to gradually move misaligned teeth into their ideal position.
Each set of Invisalign clear aligners are replaced every one-two weeks until your final result of a straight smile is achieved. You only need to visit us every few months for a short appointment. This allows us to see that everything about your teeth alignment treatment is progressing as it should, or make any changes if needed. Our dentists also make use of virtual consultations where you send photos of yourself wearing each Invisalign aligner to make sure your treatment never goes off track.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign aligners are created from a detailed digital scan using our latest iTero intraoral scanner of your teeth and gums. Using advanced 3-D imaging Invisalign software, Leichhardt Dental and Haberfield Dental can show you your proposed treatment progress and final teeth position on screen before you begin.
When you first start your Invisalign treatment, it can take a little getting used to wearing your aligners. After the first few weeks though, they’re so comfortable you’ll forget you’re even wearing them.
Unlike fixed traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can easily be removed so you can eat all your favourite foods as well as brush and floss thoroughly. Best of all, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them so you can keep doing what you love.
While most patients are suitable for Invisalign, some people may require more specialised orthodontic procedure and other treatment options to correct jaw as well as tooth alignment.
Leichhardt Dental will let you know if that is your case.
